At a press conference yesterday, in reference to Jamie Foxx having been nominated for two Oscars, Chris Rock had the following to say:
"'If he doesn't win, I will steal the sound editing Oscar,' Rock declared.
[Oscar show producer Gil] Cates reminded him that award usually has multiple winners.
'They're all punks,' Rock shot back."
Sigh. Yeah Chris, lets see how well your next movie does without any audio.
What a jerk.
He said something along these lines about a week ago, but I guess he didn't think his obnoxious comment reached enough people at that time. So hey buddy, I'm just trying to help you out.
On the bright side, I got a kick out Cates essentially stating that they went with Rock because Billy Crystal and Steve Martin were not available. :twisted:
